Question: Is there any way to save a palm tree that has had its crown knocked off? I don’t know what kind it is. The base is thick and it tapers to fronds growing tightly out of the crown. My husband inadvertently knocked it off when trying to remove some dead fronds. It has a few spikes growing up from the crown. Can you offer any advice about how to selvage it or should we just dig up the base and put something else in that space?
Answer: The most important part of the palm is its bud. Bud is the place where new growth is coming from. If part of the bud is intact, the tree has a chance to survive. If the bud is gone, the palm will die. I am sorry to tell you this, but there is nothing really you can do. ~Susan Brian
